If it helps, this is what the description of the Astronomy course is in my Curriculum Guide Astronomy presents a study of both the solar and stellar systems. Topics studied include examination of the properties of the planets, the moon, the sun, comets, meteors, stars, and galaxies. Theories on the origin of the universe and development of the field of astronomy also are examined. And this is my Astronomy teacher http://www.hehs.d211.org/people/lohs/ Check under his Astronomy section. Now should I take it?
